London School of Economics | Investing in a just transition in the UK

How investors can integrate social impact and place-based financing into climate strategies. The just transition offers investors in the UK a strategic opportunity to connect climate action with positive social impact across the country. This report sets out the initial findings of a project designed to identify how this opportunity can be realised, with a regional focus on Yorkshire and the Humber. The just transition is rapidly emerging as an essential element in the successful transition to a resilient zero-carbon economy. This rise to prominence was marked at the COP24 climate conference in 2018 by the adoption of a just transition declaration signed by 53 governments, including the UK’s, and support for an investor statement backed by over 100 institutions with more than US$6 trillion in assets – more than 20 of which are based in the UK.
